Working on sidebar

by stefanhendriks on April 25th, 2018

I’ve been working on D2TM again, fixed a bunch of issues with the interaction. Some clicks did not get picked up which is very annoying in an RTS game.

Then I started working on the sidebar. I’m still not certain about how to model it. I want to show the data of the structure you have selected, with optionally some other things you can do (ie, the build list, or later starport items, etc).

For now, this is what I came up with:

As you can see I also added a rough tooltip. The current d2tm version uses a nice bar at the top which fades in/out when hovering. Not sure which one is better, what do you think?

  1. Glad to see more work going into D2TM!

    I’m thinking of something related to the Dune II files, too. Do you know if there’s any technical reference for the .PAK files anywhere?

  2. Hey Bruno, thanks!

    I believe this is all you need:
